Feature Friday: Dan Bylsma

Throughout the 2013-2014 NHL season, I’ll be posting player features each Friday. This week, we’re going to take a look at Dan Bylsma.  By: Melissa Esing (Off_thePost)   Photo Credit: Bruce Bennett/Getty Images   It’s about that time of the year, folks. There have been summaries of every player currently on the active roster of the Pittsburgh Penguins, so what’s missing...

Dan Bylsma Does Some Power Play Tweaking

The Penguins hit the ice for practice this morning and Dan Bylsma made another little adjustment that may improve an already stunning power play. To start game one, Bylsma had Beau Bennett playing on the first line with Crosby and Kunitz and Brian Gibbons playing on the third with Brandon Sutter and Lee Stempniak. After a not so great first period by his team, he switched Gibbons...

Pittsburgh Penguins 2013-2014 Playoffs: Spotlight is on Fleury, Bylsma by @MadChad412

The 2013-2014 regular season is over. For many fans and critics, whatever happened in those 82 games no longer matters nor will it be remembered. In Pittsburgh, when it comes to the Penguins, anything less than a Stanley Cup is considered a failure. That has been the case ever since Ray Shero became general manager and the Penguins won the Stanley Cup in 2008-2009. Since then, despite...

Three Observations Heading Into Game 82 Between the Penguins and Senators

Rest Some of the Best? The Pittsburgh Penguins rested defenseman Brooks Orpik and forward Chris Kunitz in yesterday’s overtime loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. Both players are day-to-day and do not have long term injuries, according to Dan Bylsma. Will Bylsma rest some more players today? It is a possibility, especially since Pittsburgh has nine defensemen on their roster, which...

Bylsma Shows Potential in Win Over Avalanche

Michael Miller / Wikipedia I often criticized Dan Bylsma the last couple weeks. The Penguins often played without discipline, passion, energy and enthusiasm and it looked like Bylsma isn’t able to get his players back on track. Instead, he often got outcoached. But I have to tip my hat to Dan Bylsma this time! I have to admit that I feared last Sunday the Penguins might be swept...

Penguins lose to Blue in familiar fashion

After a thrilling 4-3 overtime win against the Lightning on Saturday, the Pittsburgh Penguins dropped the second game of their back-to-back home stand against the St. Louis Blues in a game that was eerily reminiscent of their loss to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals last season. St. Louis clogged up traffic in front of their own net and prevented the Penguins from...

Putting Dan Bylsma into Context by @PandaPSU

Is there a more polarizing topic right now than Dan Bylsma? Prior to this season, Pens fans were divided, and I would say fairly evenly, about whether Bylsma should stay with the team this year. After a few years of disappointing playoff exits, many fans were at their wits end with him. Yet many others pointed to his success in the regular season and the injuries the team has faced...

Dan Bylsma: Enough is ENOUGH! by @ExcitedBobErrey

I told myself I wouldn't write this post.I told myself I wouldn't compare Team USA under Dan Bylsma and the Pittsburgh Penguins under Dan Bylsma, because they're two completely different situations. The outcome of the Olympics does not affect Dan Bylsma's ability as coach of the Pens in the slightest. A Gold Medal for Team USA wouldn't make Dan Bylsma more likely...

Does Pittsburgh Deserve Bylsma? by @ChicksDigHockey

 It must be hard to be a coach or sports figure in the contentious world of Pittsburgh sports. The rabid sports fans of Southwestern Pennsylvania demand an unattainable level of perfection and accountability that leaves little room for the frailties of mortality. I offer the example of Dan Bylsma. He made the mistake of coaching the Penguins to a Stanley Cup victory the same year...
